"There is a story, always ahead of you ..."

Michael Ondaatje

As a poet who also writes prose, I am perpetually bewitched by the narratives we devise to re-imagine ourselves and the lives of others. Stories made fresh with purpose and mystery.

Poem of the Week

Recipe for Impatience


You’ll want a sponge for this

Leave overnight to sour


In modern times less salt is used

Taste carefully


Add what really cannot wait



Stir one hundred strokes

And then one hundred strokes


Do not skip

This step is key
